>> reporter: hey, good morning to all of you. you know i think this is one of those situations where we're going to have to wait and see how it plays out. we do know that metro is anticipating and bracing for a shortage of workers come friday into the weekend and that's because they say they have received an unusual amount of sick calls for this friday, and they're not revealing or they're not saying exactly how many employees have called out for this friday but that number obviously significant and high enough that they are sort of, you know, shoveling folks around and maneuvering the schedules around to make sure that they have plenty of people working and they can minimize the service disruption. but, you know, we talked to the union and they told us this statement here. if you have received any information from management regarding employees calling in sick on friday it is not about contract negotiations or a right to strike. wmata policy requires that employees provide a 72 hour advance notice in anticipation of being sick.
9:09 am
their superior they may be sick on friday, they are only adhering to wmat's own policy. right now metro and the union they're locked in very contentious and contract dispute and so that is why we reached out to the union for statement. but you know metro has not gotten back to us yet but certainly this is something that we at fox5 are paying close attention to to see how think plays out but also it's passengers we talked to plenty who take both bus and rail that they are concerned, you know, it's already tough times with metro, and now you have this to deal with, and so they are saying that while they're hoping for the best, that they are also preparing for another way to get around come friday noon the weekend. that's the latest. back to you guys in the studio. >> we have to watch and see how this plays out. annie yu thank you for that. >> 9:09 is the time right now. it's been one year since beyonce' told her ladies to get in formation. well now she's mar marking the anniversary by paying it forward that could mean a live changing opportunities for local student

9:15 am
$59 million year in rental income, even more in local spending and tax revenues but there are concerns that some property owners are basically running unregulated hotels buying up apartment buildings and renting them out short term rather than renning out affordable housing apartments. now mcduffie's bill would require a new short-term rental business license as well as health and safety inspections. it would restrict it willings to only one per property owner and that must be the property owner's primary residence. it would cap rentals at 15 days per year when the property owner is not present but no limit on home sharing when the owner is there. critics say mcduffie's bill inch fringes on property rights. >> i'm always looking for residential solutions to protect the interests of the district of columbia residents. i think this bill does that and if there are tweaks to make i'm top making those tweak at the end of the day steve it will be important to make sure we're allowing an environment in district of columbia to provide housing of people of a i

and all backgrounds. >> reporter: airbnb certainly has been pushing back hard on this. they say they've done their own studies there's no correlation between airbnb rentals and affordable ho housing in the district. they open to some kind of regulation as for the homeowners who participate in this, many of them say they need this kind of income to be able to support the kind of mortgages that they have to take on in order to live in the city. so there real sal balance here that needs to be struck. we know that airbnb is bringing several. their host and host families here to city council headquarters ahead of the hearing this morning. that hearing begins at 10:00 and we certainly do expect it to be quite interesting. back to you guys. >> indeed it will be melanie alnwick, thank you for that. what do you think about this? it's a controversial topic. tweet us at #gooddaydc. weigh in on what you think about airbnb. >> i'm surprised mr. fiscal has hasn't gone this route good i know. >> i'm nervous about staying in so

it's almost like when you pay taxes on a house you have to live there so much for it to be considered your primary residence. if you want to ren it out you basically is to have it as a some place where you actually live as opposed to just buying up a bunch of, you know, properties and then saying i'm going to profit all of this by renting them all out. i think that's what the city and the councilman was afraid of. people will take housing right now that is available for people and make it, you know, individuals will jack the prices up. >> they have a leg up. they got the cash. buying up these homes if you're looking for a house in d.c. and short of a millionaire any more you can't live in d.c. >> right. >> heck, you can't live in maryland or virginia for that matter. >> which also does beg the question, if a person making a moderate income or low income can't really get into the house, isn't this america. shouldn't we be able to do what we want with our property? so definitely see both sides of the issue. for sure. >> let us know what you think as mo said. >> the hearing gets under way at 10:00 o'clock this morning. >> we'll be watching. 9:18. coming up lateroo
